I definitely liked this movie. It was not spooky, just a little bit creepy. As usual. it had the Tim Burton feel to it. I was able to read the first book of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children before watching this movie. Although a lot of scenes and details were altered in the movie, it was still a good interpretation of the book. My favourite characters were Bronwyn and Miss Peregrine. I liked Brownwyn because she was adorable. On the other hand, Miss Peregrines character from the book, in my opinion was perfectly executed by Eva Green.

I have given this movie a 4.5 hearts rating because I think the ending could have been better. For me the ending was too rushed up, also the story had loose ends which were needed to be addressed. All in all, despite this, I really enjoyed watching the movie because of its peculiarity.
